Seemingly they hotfixremoved those dispels effect in order to prevent guilds from using that tactic on Primordius. I'm annoyed that we wasted 8 hours doing that tactic just to be spat in the face and mocked by guilds who have already gotten past the boss using the tactic, but in the end I'm overly pleased with our new tactic. It's alot less clunky and much better dpswise (hard to believe, but true).

    About letting the debuff drop on its own. No just no. And do not Unbound Will it without having Sac Pact or Unending Resolve running, the damage is too great and we warlocks know how healers like to react to spike damage on random raid members, effectively not healing the tank anymore, who then dies. GG atleast the warlock was saved. Hnnng.

    I use Unbound Will to dispell every single ionization, the soul leech shield you build while dpsing in the pool is more than enough to soak the hit.
    I prefer to sac a VW, and use it + sac pact during the dodge ball part, this way I can "ignore" the balls for the most part.

    I've not done the fight on heroic but why not just start mounted and place your portal at the start and just port every time?

    Seems when they hotfixed the imp dispel and other dispel mechanics to stop people using it on Primordius HC it also screwed everything else up.

    It's a different fight on HC, really. You can't compare the two, since the 2 new mechanics completely change the fight.

    During my first kill on this Heroic, we rotated the pulls clockwise and stacked the focused lightnings in the grates. We had ranged drop their Focuses to the left of the active pool's grates and melee on the opposite (to minimize ball damage if it went through people). As far as ranged was concerned we hugged the edged of the pool to be able to hop out and quickly position the focuses. I didnt't get focused during Ionization on our kill but on the attempts I did I still let Ion fall off on its own while taking focuses out like usual. Waiting for a healer to dispell so you can go back in cuts of some damage when you could be in the pool.

    When I didn't get focused I stayed in the pool til the debuff had 3 secs left, walked out to drop then went back in for a few seconds before lightning storm came. What sucks for me though is I died right before the execute phase with my cds/pot/ and 4 embers ready to burn, was at 200k before death :/ I will say I loved Destro for this.

    Lightning Bolts =/= the balls on normal, he's on about the heroic mechanic that turns the entire arena into a bullet hell.

    If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball. If you had no problems with attenuation, you shouldnt have problems with this one. Only mechanic thats a wiper really is people dropping Ionization in a pool killing everyone. I wish they would not have screwed up the self dispels. I really hate having to gather Primo Mutates from zero:/

    I don't have this issue on H jinrohk. My only thought is if ur using gosac vs sup u get singe magic vs sear magic and for gosac u would have to use a command demon input vs petcast macro or keybind. Honestly, if ur being asked to dispel urself, dont bother. U can just run out of the water. Remember, you dont have to be in the middle to get the buff u can be on the very edge and still get it.

    Well it's a dps increase to dispell yourself rather then letting it drop off, since you only have to run out for 2 seconds rather then take 5-10 seconds to run out/spread/run back etc. Also it definatly is broken since this reset.

    Not a fun suprise when doing Primordius hc, but we managed to addapt our tactic. New tactic works fine as well.

    Everyone doing heroic knows that you CAN run out, that isn't the issue - it's just less optimal under a lot of situations.

    How is it less optimal of you are hugging the edge of the pool anyway, and dipping out while not burning a cd to dispel, when you can move out of the pool. And go back in. Unless you know you have internals you are waiting then I can understand but if they are rolling, it can be vice versa to wai til they wear off if you won't drop Ion in the pool.

  13. #33
    In any case it seems fixed?

    If it's fixed it probably went in with the BT fix too.

    Prettymuch exactly what you said - if you're waiting for a proc to come off ICD or you have no soulshards / are building embers, then it's better to run out and dispel, then get back in so that you can be in the pool until the very last second it becomes electrified.

    Obviously if you've got procs rolling / shards / embers to dump then you're not going to run out to dispel, but having the option to dispel doesn't prevent you doing that, not having the option to dispel does strip you of the ability to squeeze that little extra out. It's not a huge deal and certainly won't make or break your performance and letting it fall off is a perfectly valid way of dealing with the debuff, but when I have times like getting a focused lightning, needing to run out, then having such a short time left on ionization that I need to stand around waiting for it to fall off, whereas I'd usually just dispel it - it's frustrating and completely unjustified.

    That aside, glad to hear it's apparently fixed.
